A saint from Khurasan (Afghanistan now) was commanded in a dream: ‘Present an invitation of Islam to the Tatar nation!’ At that time, the son of Tagodaarwas in power.

The saint travelled and made his way to Tagodaar. After recognising the Muslim preacher, a portrait of Sunnah with a blessed beard on his face, he became mischievous and said: ‘O Man! Tell me what is better, your beard or my dog's tail? Although this comment was aggravating, since he was an

intelligent preacher, he, very gently (and with wisdom), said: ‘I am also a dog of my Creator and Lord, Allah Almighty! If I succeed in pleasing him with sacrifice and loyalty, then I am better, otherwise your dog's tail is better than mine.’

Tagodar, in response to his ‘poisonous thorn’, found a ‘fragrant flower’ from this practising preacher, which softened him and he gently replied: ‘You are my guest, stay here with me!’ Thus he stayed with him. Tagodar would come to him every night, and he would call him towards righteousness with great compassion. His individual effort created a revolution in Tagodar's heart! The same Tagodar who had been trying to eradicate Islam from the face of the earth till yesterday, had today become a great admirer of Islam. At The hands of this practicing preacher, Tagodar became a Muslim along with his entire Tatar nation and he was given the Islamic name Ahmad.. Subahan Allah 😍

Dear Islamic Brothers And Sisters! Of course, if the Saint became angry upon the bitter comment of Tagodar, these results would never have happened. So no matter how much someone provokes you, the tongue should be kept under control, because when the tongue is not controlled then at times it can even interfere with things which are running smoothly.

From this anecdote, it is also known that while calling towards righteousness, one is occasionally confronted with harsh tones, sour words, distorted expressions and those turning a blind eye to accepting the call towards righteousness. Even in such circumstances, patience should not be abandoned, one should be big-hearted, courage and resilience should be adopted and one’s focus should be on calling towards righteousness with sincerity while understanding the importance of this great work.

Remember! Inviting towards righteousness can never be pointless, because in the case of having good intentions, the one calling towards righteousness becomes entitled to the reward of the Hereafter anyhow.

Sayyiduna Imam Muhammad Ghazzali(Rahmatullahi Alaih) states: "A saint said, while advising his son: The Muslim who calls towards righteousness should accustom himself with patience and firmly believe in the reward (given in exchange) for calling towards Righteousness from Allah Almighty. Whoever has full faith in the reward does not feel any pain in this blessed work.

One should not stop calling towards righteousness because of problems inflicted on them from Islamic sisters, as Sayyiduna Nuh preached for nine hundred and fifty (950) years in spite of enduring hardships. Preaching the religion (i.e. calling towards righteousness) requires courage and resilience, the cowardly and timid person cannot fulfil the right of preaching (i.e. Calling towards righteousness).

Whether it is a matter of calling towards righteousness or forbidding evil, gentleness should be kept in mind in any circumstance, as the benefits of gentleness can never be achieved through harshness.

In the same way, keep in mind that a preacher should be a preacher everywhere (she goes), she should always keep her dress and her manner completely according to the Sunnah. As per the occasion, we should not even feel ashamed to call towards righteousness..
